nomadic - on the move


Migration (Love Boat) (2013) by Bokja


The interest in textile design is growing and transforming our world with noble materials, ethnic origins and natural colourings. Once more, the youngest designers experience the challenge of the loom. Enabled by our smart phones and tablets, people feel freer and decide to make their life a nomadic one, without rules, without borders, without walls.


Consumers take their houses on their back and turn to textile for its flexibility and caring character.

Sitting on the floor, lounging on mattresses and delving into cushions, we will transform our life into an adventure. Transformation will become the norm.
